The four continents that make up the rim of the mighty Pacific Ocean were the last great areas of earth to be settled by humans. The first people to look out on the Pacific arrived on its western shores from Africa more than a million years ago, but their descendants only completed that occupation 1000 years ago, with the discovery of the islands of Polynesia.
The cultures that arose around the pacific Rim have a history as rich and complex as any in Europe or the Mediterranean, yet until recently there was little interest in the West in the origins and achievements of half the inhabitants of the planet.
